What's New in Version 6.8.1
This update fixes:
-Selection of FBO markers on Taxi Charts
-Extend FBO markers on Taxi Charts to Basic plans
-Favorite imagery selection
-Missing radar animation controls
Note: iOS 8.3 introduced an issue that prevents early model external GPS accessories from sending GPS updates to iOS applications. We are working with Apple on a resolution. Visit blog.foreflight.com for details and a workaround.
This app update brings enhancements to the taxi charts and an expansion of the taxi chart database. Read on for the details.
FBO Locations on Taxi Charts
Taxiing to the FBO gets easier! Over 2,700 FBO locations are now mapped on both FAA and ForeFlight taxi charts for better ground-based taxi guidance. When coupled with the own-ship display capability in ForeFlight Pro, you can easily see where your aircraft is in relation to the FBO. We continue to add more FBO markers with each Business Directory database update. While viewing a taxi chart, tap on any FBO marker to see detailed information, including photos, fuel prices, contact information, and more. FBO markers will appear on taxi charts within the Plates view and also when displaying a taxi chart on top of the moving map. FBO markers currently display for Pro customers and will begin displaying for Basic customers in release 6.8.1 (coming soon).
Expanded Taxi Chart Coverage
We continue to invest in expanding our taxi chart coverage, providing taxi charts for airports not mapped by the FAA. With this release, we have added more than 1,600 ForeFlight taxi charts - more than tripling the coverage provided by the FAA alone! Our airport mapping team continues to expand ForeFlight's coverage, giving you more coverage at more airports. Combined with the new FBO display on taxi charts, finding FBOs at airports is easier than ever.
New Ownship Display Options for AC 120-76C Compliance
ForeFlight now makes it easier for our FAA Part 91F, 91K, 121, 125 and 135 customers to comply with ownship display requirements as defined in FAA AC 120-76C. The Enable Ownship setting options now include Limited mode. Limited mode automatically applies the speed-restricted display function and removes the ownship position once airborne as described in the Advisory Circular.
iOS 8 or higher required
ForeFlight Mobile 6.8 requires iOS 8 or higher. By moving to iOS 8 as the minimum supported iOS version, we can deliver new features enabled by the Apple update, deliver smaller application downloads, improve energy efficiency, improve support for devices like the iPhone 6 Plus, and deliver faster application performance.

Love using this. Makes flight planning much easier. One idea that would make it better is a way to show unpublished holds on a fix or vor. You could type in the headings outbound and in bound and it could show you the hold. If that was in there this would be a perfect app
Love this app. I use it every time I fly. I always look forward to updates. They actively keep improving this app all the time. Great job. Keep up the work.
Need faster response to iOS 8.3 compatibility problem
Foreflight no longer supports Bad Elf Pro. Has been several days now and we need a solution. Many of us purchased the GPS device on Foreflight's recommendation and your team needs to work with Apple to get it sorted please.
